Try Pop OS! it's user friendly and imo better than ubuntu

Thanks! Do you happen to know of it's lightweight? Because I've heard ubuntu is pretty heavy with gnome. So, for a laptop with 8gb of ram, I'm not sure if it is going to be convenient, specially because I do use a lot of things simultaneously sometimes.

pop os also uses gnome as it's desktop environment so, i dont think there's that much difference but that's just my opinion a little research might prove me wrong.
I would say manjaro objectively is the best linux distro.

Thank you! I might try it, I kinda want to use Arch but I also want to have some experience before using it.
Manjaro is Arch based I think, so it might be a good idea to use it.

yes manjaro is indeed arch based and much more friendlier than arch itself, Ive used both and I recommend both. download some images and try them on virtualbox play around a bit see which one you'll like
